The political regulations agreed in Bavaria from November 19, 2021 and the heavily restricted constraints associated with an incidence of 1,000 have far-reaching consequences for Performance Days. As a result of the current sharp rise in the number of infections in Munich, the planned winter edition must now be cancelled as a precaution.

Marco Weichert, CEO Performance Days:

“Exceptional situations require exceptional decisions – making these all the more difficult. After experiencing a very successful and surprisingly well-attended fair with the Functional Fabric Fair by Performance Days in Portland, Oregon last week, we have tried everything possible up to the last moment and firmly believed that we would finally set a further positive milestone with the physical edition of Performance Days in Munich. We fulfilled all the requirements, updated our hygiene concept several times to comply with the dynamically changing measures and took all the necessary precautions for a safe event. Unfortunately, current developments do not allow us to host the trade fair event next week, since the undisputed top priority is the protection and health of our visitors. Now our focus turns to the full implementation of the Digital Fair on December 1 and 2, 2021.”

Complete Focus on digital platform

As part of The Loop, those interested have the opportunity as of now to view online the fabric innovations and news for the Winter Season 2023/24, this year’s Focus Topic “Sustainable Nylon” and the latest color trends. In the Marketplace, visitors will be able to view the numerous exhibitor products, including the Performance Forum’s curated sustainable fabric highlights. In order to present the fabrics to visitors as realistically as possible in terms of feel, design and structure in digital form, the Performance Forum has been equipped with new 3D-technology, including innovative tools such as 3D images, video animations and downloadable U3M files.

Throughout the Digital Fair, exhibitors and fair visitors can look forward to extensive networking opportunities. For example, as part of the extensive digital supporting program on December 1, with various expert talks, discussion rounds and speakers via livestream. On December 2, the “sustain & innovate” conference on this year’s Focus Topic “The Sustainable Future of Nylon” will kick off with discussions and panels.

The next Performance Days live in Munich takes place on April 27 and 28, 2022.
